MATH 4090 - Foundation of Analysis

The course provides an opportunity for the development of theorem-proving skills in the field of mathematical analysis.  Expansion of a knowledge base comes as a by-product of energy expended in theorem proving and subsequent exposition.  Analysis topics included are: sets, functions, the real numbers, cardinality, induction, decimal representations of real numbers, Euclidean spaces, abstract vector spaces and metric spaces. This is a communication-intensive course.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite:  Mathematics major, Corequisite:  MATH-2010 or permission of instructor.

When Offered: Fall and spring terms annually.

Credit Hours: 4
